Yeah I’ll be buying this. :stuck_out_tongue:


#3

More samurais + more harems + more ecchiness = BUY

Plus I’ve noticed that the youngest sister, Kagome looks like Saya from Peacemaker. The oldest one, Ibuki, also reminds me of someone, just can’t but my finger on it yet.

Guess it’s time to start donating some blood or apply for some experimental medical trials. Those always pay good money…if you don’t mind the side effects.:ohmy:

I don’t know much about this one, but I will definitely be giving it a try. I don’t know if I will be preordering it though.

It’s what Bamboo Blade should have been more of.:wink:

More what in this case, fanservice or what?

Episode 1 -

Yoichi has a very unique way of fishing. I like how his father covered himself from telling Yoichi that he’s too strong and tells him instead that he needs to go and experience the outside world. I also liked the way his father sends mail – by an arrow that can go faster than a train and even ring a doorbell! Now that’s skill!
*
When Yoichi, the country bumpkin, arrives in the big city, he is understandably overwhelmed and also sticks out like a sore thumb. People think he is either filming something or cosplaying. He has an encounter with a bully and gets arrested. The cops think he’s a “pleasant ruffian” and also tell him that he shouldn’t dress the way he does. I agreed with him when he told them – “Is it a crime to be different?” It was funny too that he excused himself and ran out of the police station for an appointment, leaving behind some very puzzled cops.
*
Having lost his map, he ends up looking at a store directory and thinks he’s in a foreign land. In fact his whole store adventure was very entertaining. His first time on a escalator was very funny and then from unknowingly meeting the people he’s supposed to meet – in awkward situations – to chasing a purse snatcher and then finally helping a lost child find her sister. I love how she described her sister so that Yoichi could find her – “kind” – “a good cook” – “big boobs” and it was a very dramatic way in which she was finally reunited with her sister. He then falls through a window and gets to ride on top of a train. Such an exciting first day in the city for him!
*
Towards the end of the day, poor Yoichi feels like such a failure, but Ibuki finds him at the same time as the police do and he gets arrested again. But because of his apologies and good deeds, there are no charges and he is released. Ibuki takes him home and he meets the other sisters that already had run-ins with him at the department store and have formed their own impressions about him. It is going to be interesting – and very funny - to see how he adapts to his new situation. There should be some very good life experiences ahead for him!

I finished up the first half of Samurai Harem this weekend, and I have to say it’s a lot of fun. It doesn’t really bring anything new to the “harem” genre, but I found myself laughing and smiling a lot more than I expected. It’s certainly not going to stimulate your intellect, but it’s a ton of fun.

I also really like the ED.


#16

BAH!!!
Intellect is so overrated. Give me mindless eye candy, gross out slapstick, gratuitous nudity any day.

After all, I can’t be the “hoity-toity, top hat, monocle, and walking sword cane” fellow 24/7.


#17

Hey, who says you can’t have a monocle and gratuitous nudity?

May start on the first disc after lunch today. If not then probably sometime next week. Problem is I am getting to lazy to put a disc in the DVD player. Need one of them at least 5 disc changers. 6 would be best cause I could get 3 shows in it. Heck might as well find one of those 300 disc ones. I am looking forward to this. When I find myself burned out a good does of mindless eye candy seems to ignite the flame again.
